Marzipan

Marzipan, or almond paste, is usually used to cover cakes before they are iced. Although you can buy marzipan ready-made in blocks, it is easy to make at home. This recipe from Tala is simple to follow.

  • 2 small eggs, lightly beaten
  • 250g caster sugar

  • 5ml pure almond essence

Method

  • Sift the icing sugar into a mixing bowl and stir in the caster sugar and ground almonds.
